Our first stop was about 2 miles from the house. I got out of the car to take this picture and nearly tipped over, the wind was so strong.
The road we took was....well, the road less traveled. In fact there was a fairly monstrous drift on a downhill stretch that we nearly didn't make it through. The bottom of the car drug in several spots and the BBITU kept joking that the car must be alright because the oil light hadn't come on, yet.
This picture was taken from the front porch. There were several of these birds riding the weather out in this tree, but by the time I got the camera out of the case, only one remained. I know it's not a great picture, but for some reason, I like it.
Tomorrow I go back to Forsyth. I have a banquet in the afternoon where I will be showing a PowerPoint I put together on conservation practices. Pam, over at Mind Trips graciously allowed me to use a piece of her artwork for both the presentation and the cover of my annual report. She is an ardent supporter of conservation and an amazing artist. If you click on the link above, it will take you directly to the piece I used.Thank you, Pam!
